The first in a seven DVD series, BASIC/FEAR GOD 1 addresses how that fear of God, which is undeniable, can lead to life.
To understand the relationship between God and man, we turn to those who have directly interacted with Him in the Bible. In each case, they are met with fear. Not respect, reverence or courage, but sheer speechlessness, humility, and complete surrender.
They are overcome with pure fear and many of them cry out to be destroyed. Most people today have lost this fear. We must understand that a true fear of God leads to the keeping of His commandments, leads to life, and is the beginning of wisdom. Everyone who has come face-to-face with God falls over in fear. Do you think you’d do anything different? Then act like it.
